11:01pm
charges of official misconduct. and that means the mayor did not have enough votes to remove the sheriff from office, and he can now be reinstated. board members started deliberating at 9:30, many made emotional statements about family members being victims of domestic violence. but supervisors christina olagi, john avalos and jane kim said while what murkarimi did was wrong, the charter is too narrow to support removing him from office. >> while the emotion satisfaction and political expedience of removing an official for a crime that most of us find unacceptable is very tempting to me, that is precisely the danger of removing an elected official for official misconduct for actions before that person are officially in office. it is a dangerous precedent to set. >> reporter: ross murkarimi supporters turned out by the hundreds for this hearing. the suspended sheriff and his wife sat attentively for hours tonight. murkarimi's wife eliana lopez
11:02pm
cried as she listened to members of the board announce that they would vote no when she realized murkarimi can keep his job. mayor ed lee needed nine votes to remove the sheriff from office, and tonight it became clear before a final vote count even took place he did not visit. by a vote of 7-4, the board of supervisors does not sustain official misconduct charges, and sheriff ross murkarimi can be reinstated. reporting live in san francisco, jean elle, nbc bay area news. i can't talk. i'm going to start crying. it's unbelievable. >> the other big story tonight, the giants and a's are both still alive. the teams came up with big wins with their backs against the wall. for both of them, it was a do or die situation, and they did it. >> boy did they do it. hen they did, the giants in dramatic fashion. the a's won in front of a packed and vocal house. >> we have leave coverage.
11:03pm
cheryl hurd is live outside coliseum. but first kate longworth has highlights from tonight's game. hi, kate. >> reporter: hey, ladies. well, it was win the baseball game tonight or book your golf tee times tomorrow. both the a's and giants proved that they did not want their magical seasons to come to an end. the a's were down two games in this best of five series to detroit. and they sent brett anderson to the mound in front of a sold-out crowd tonight at the coliseum. anderson showed no sign of his previous oblique injury while seth smith led the offense for a 2-0 a's vic troy keep their season and postseason alive. >> especially at home in front of these fans is unbelievable, you know. they came out and they were supporting us from the get-go. i feel like i was pitching the game and warming up in the bull pen. you can't give these fans enough credit and the guys behind me. it was fun. i can't describe it any other way.
11:04pm
>> i knew he would step up and rise to the occasion, and he did. he came out and but sure didn't look like it was bothering him too much. >> he was great. that's what you expect out of him. it's kind of been the story with our starting pitching all yearlong. they come out and have a knack for shutting down the closing offense. and if we can scratch out a couple of wins we were going to win. >> and the a's weren't the only ones with their season on the line. still to come on nbc bay area news we head to cincinnati for reaction. the giants manage just one hit through nine innings, but still pulled off the w. well, you got to see it to believe it. meanwhile, the a's gave their fans another day to believe in the green and gold. we'll be right back here at the coliseum tomorrow, same matchup, tigers and a's as they go for game 4 in the alds. the first pitch is scheduled for 6:37. ladies? >> okay, thank you very much, kate. so let's stay on the a's there. there was all that hoopla at the stadium, all that excitement on the field, all of it missed by
11:05pm
some die-hard a's fans because of a ticket mix-up. what they thought was game three really turned out to be game one? what? nbc's cheryl hurd is at the ballpark to sort it out. boy, that really stinks for those folks. >> reporter: it does stink. in fact, it was pretty awful. listen up. can you imagine buying a ticket for one of the most important games of the season, and you can't go in? well, it happened here tonight. >> i heard what he said, and it's bs. keep telling yourself that, dude. >> reporter: there was confusion outside the coliseum when a's fans who thought they had tickets for tonight's game didn't. >> they told me it is my mistake, that i made the mistake by purchasing for game three. that all these people in this stadium purchased the right ticket. so obviously i am the one who made the mistake. >> reporter: this family wasn't the only ones missing the must-win game against the detroit tigers. >> online there were five game choices, and there was a box
11:06pm
down below that told you which game number three was. and that was the first home game. >> reporter: and there lies the confusion. some a's fans purchased game three tickets thinking they were good because this is the third time the a's face off against the tigers in this play-off series. but a's officials say the tickets for tonight's game should not say three, but one. and number one means that the tickets are for the first home game in the series. >> it's obviously the way baseball sets it up. it's the same thing in the world series. they've been doing this for years that way. and it's unfortunate that there is a misunderstanding. >> reporter: this ticket mix-up was not a way to keep fans happy. but the game didn't disappoint fans inside the stadium. the sold-out crowd hung on every pitch, strikeout, and swing. and in the end -- >> we won! [ cheering ] >> giants fans, we're still here, we're still here! >> they're rookies. it's incredible.
11:07pm
it's one game at a time. and i think they can win tomorrow. and i think we can win thursday. >> reporter: these towels were given out tonight to a's fans. they were practically like gold. folks were snapping them up. game 4 is here tomorrow night. reporting live in oakland, i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >> bummer that they didn't get to see it. thank you very much. nice towel swinging there. so as you heard her say, the win means we get to do it again tomorrow. so our coverage begins on today in the bay at 4:30 in the morning. we're of course going to have live reports from oakland, and of course following the giants in cincinnati as well. a blast of fall swept through the south bay and through parts of the peninsula tonight after a record heat last week. this rain is a welcome tight. >> chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is in the weather center with all the details for us. jeff, you must be so excited. you've wanted the rain. >> definitely we are excited to see this rainfall finally returning to the bay area. some much needed rain. but also creating some dangerous
11:08pm
and slick spots on the roadways. here is a look at that satellite radar picture over the past hour. it really swept across quickly from south san jose through campbell. continuing to hold up across the san francisco peninsula. we did note some areas of lightning and also thunder with this thunderstorm cell. but at the current moment, we're not detecting any lightning right now south of san francisco. here is the thing. as we put a storm track on this, it looks like it will hold up over the next hour. right across the san francisco airport, likely producing delays, and even into downtown san francisco. so this first fall rain is finally ah living here across the bay area. but again, we'll continue to create some slick roads, even as we head into our wednesday commute. as this system drops to the south, we're going to find widespread problems. not only isolated showers, but more potential thunderstorms and even snow across the sierra. we're going to detail all of this in the timeline in what you can expect for tomorrow morning coming up in a few minutes. >> we'll see you then.
11:09pm

"the mercury news" says that man has been identified as 22-year-old alejandro sandoval. the chp says he ran on to the highway after a fight at a nearby home. relatives tried to stop him but couldn't. the driver who hit him did not stay at the scene. investigators did catch up with the driver, but so far no arrests have been made. tonight police are still looking for a suspect in a hit-and-run crash that injured a

11:18pm
entrepreneurially-minded really is a huge benefit to trying to start a business. >> reporter: buckley started his ipad cover business just five months after moving here in 2010. >> the case is born in this very room. i was assembling and boxing our first products. >> reporter: the business has grown exponentially since the early days, and now he's got a huge warehouse churning out up to a thousand cases a day. buckley's success is inspiring to turee who posed his career in finance to start an all-natural grass-fed beef jerky business, even though he calls himself mostly vegan. >> it is quite a shift. it's nothing that i really had planned. but i was just frustrated with the lifestyle of finance. seeing some of my housemates succeed, seeing them take risks is really helpful. >> reporter: and no, they're not

11:20pm
isolated showers and thunderstorms continuing in that forecast. but it's going to be that nature a very hit and miss. not everybody is going to see something here as we head throughout the next 24 hours, just like for tonight. across the peninsula it was pretty wild over the past 35 to 40 minutes. it started to calm down. we had a few lightning strikes. no damage or anything like that reported. up here into san francisco, you may actually have some flight delays tonight as we are looking at heavier rainfall right near the airport on 101. this is pushing to the north in kind of an odd fashion across san francisco. you can see we'll be looking at some showers also moving into downtown as we head throughout the next 30 to 40 minutes. rite now plenty of numbers in the 50s and 60s. let's take you outside of the live hd sky network. something we haven't seen this widespread in our four to five months. we have the wet roads in san jose and palo alto also is very wet here. not only highway 101, but also 280. and in san francisco and downtown, it's about to get a little bit more wet.
11:21pm
not as heavy as what we had earlier tonight, but definitely a little shower activity coming your way. next 48 hours, what we're tracking out on the satellite loop is an expansive system. one of the largest systems we've probably seen since about january, february, and march of last year. we're going to see that eventually impact as we head throughout friday this upcoming week. for tomorrow, a few spotty showers as this stubborn area of low pressure pushes to the south. it will provide those hit and miss spotty showers with temperatures in the 50s and 60s a the coastline. plenty of autumn air with 60s and also 70s in the valleys. for the overnight hours, no heavy widespread consistent rainfall. you can see the green is very spotty. but by tomorrow at about 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00, when we get some daytime heating, what we'll find is more of what we had for tonight. some spotty areas of showers popping up in the south bay, east bay and also for the peninsula. not only that, but if you're headed anywhere near the sierra, let's say yosemite, 1 to 3
11:22pm
inches of snow expected over the next 48 hours. do be prepared for winter conditions. up across the north bay tonight, low 40s expected. 50s across the east bay. and daytime highs tomorrow will be in the low to mid-70s. let's get you into the thee-day forecast. temperatures also in the low to mid 70s the next three days. and as we head throughout next week, we'll get warming with low to mid-80s. so we're kind of going up and down on the temperatures. but just be aware for tomorrow. we do have a chance of isolated thunder in the forecast, and then another chance of showers for friday. >> going to break out the umbrella. >> yes, keep it close by. >> thanks. >> hope i can find the umbrella. we'll be right back. measures... measure up. money to our schools.
